EDITORIAL 

It takes more than buildings and money to mi'ke 
a college . Tre students, tie faculty, and their influ- 
ence -- these are tie heart of a college. Puildings and 
money may house a college: certainly they do not make 
a college. The stern professor, the austere dean, the 
preponderant president, the gay student, form tie school. 
Classes, studies, lectures, work, recreation, play, so- 
ciety, religion -- these form tie college life. Col- 
lego is not an impersonal, feolingless mass of build- 
ings: it is a throbting, quickening throng of students; 
some young, some old, tut all students in this grot t 
school. i .-re lives are lived, characters moulded, de- 
cisions made, futures planned and purposes formed. Col- 
lege is a process, making, moulding, tuilding, fitting; 
from the college come forth graduates that will tless or 
curse the world. 



A NIGHT ET EASTSRN LAK3 

One Octoter evening a "bout a year ago. while on 
a hunting trio, I with my two partners -ent to Eastern 
ke to lie in wait for a moose. 

The lake is situated near my home. It is a tout 
three miles out in the woods, in a heavily wooded valley. 
Near the lake the land is swampy and dangerous to travel 
over, tut a short distance from the ranks the lend is 
firm and hilly. Prom Bastern Lake a large trook runs 
down the valley and empties into the St. John River. Eoth 
the lake and the trook atound with good-sized trout. The 
surface of the lake is only about five scuare miles, and 
one might thin'' it is a dismal spot in the woods, tut 
sue! an idea is wrong. After one has passed tie swamps 
one oomes to the lovely sandy tanks, and views a quiet 
body of ".''tor with a pretty oval-shaped island in the 
center. It is an ideal place to camp in the summer. 

It was at this lake that we three hunters arrived 
just before dark. w"e had carried our guns, lunches. 



"blankets, field glasses, cameras, and other things neces- 
sary for a hunt, and were tired from our walk through the 
woods. ' Te ate our aupper, ancl set about to make our ted 
for the night. " r e out and spread some boughs on a dry 
smooth place on the bank, and then spread our blankets 
on too of them, "'e were going to stay only one night 
and did not take any tent with us. 

"ter we had made our led we sat in the darkness 
and planned our hunt for tie early morning. "e knew there 
was game in that part of tl e woods and felt sure of suc- 
) s, but decided to call a moose to see if we could get 
an answer before we retired. I took my birch-bark horn 
I called loudly and clearly. It was dark now, but we 
heard one faint answer in the distance. In 8 short time 
I called again. This time the answer came from just a- 
c.-os3 the lake. As soon as tire moose answered ho plunged 
into tl o water and swam toward us. It is against the 
law to shoot after sunset, and the penalty for breaking 
this law is five hundred dollars. 3inoo my partners 

had never seen a m >ose before, they became nervous at the 



sound of his- approach, I told them to sit "behind me and 
keep very cpuiet. They obeyed while I sat with my rifle 
readj' for action if the moose should attack us. The 
moose came up within a few feet from us. The wind was 
bl owing toward him, and just as I thought it was going 
to "be necessary for me to "break the law, he caught our 
scent, and with a loud snort turned and swam "back hur- 
riedly to the other shore. 

It was moonlight enough for us to see the form 
of the moose. He was large and appeared to he in good 
condition. " r o h d no doubt about calling him back in 
the morning, and were contented now to lie down to rest. 

The night was quite cold, and before morning 
our bed seemed as hard as stone. Shortly after midnight 
one of the fellows woke me to ask what time it was. Eg 
3 cold and restless, but we huddled up and I comforted 
a by pulling the bluff that the coldest part of the 
night was over. 7e slept fairly well until I woke the 
others at day-break, '^e got up then, and were ready for 
action . 



ile two of us went around the lake to call 
the moose, the other fellow built a fire and prepared 
breakf ast . After we had called a fow times and received 
no answer, we walked back and got our breakfast. After 
breakfast the three of us -.vent out for a hunt. ,rr o had 
no success. Sailing the moose the night "before had 
spoiled our catch. After we lad hunted a few hours we 
returned, took our "belongings, and went homo, 7e were 
not discouraged, but we were sorry we had been so foolish 
the night before. E.R.E.

OKLY A GLAKC3 

My first trip to Eoston and no seat by the window! 

I sit down beside a sleeping Italian. r :he shade is down. 

I can't look out. It's an express to Boston. As we glide 

on I hurl a glance on either side. The workman wakes. 

Water-houses -- factories -- swamps -- and water. Soon 

I see poston. 'That is it? Stores, lights, oars, trains, 

and -- jostling crowds in jumbled streets. 

H.C. 

TITTB CHANGES THI17GS 

I seek inspiration. 

Ah! it comes, it comes at last in the form of that 
old fireplace in the library. As I sit opposite it, my 
mind goes back to the days when this building was the pa- 
latial home of Governor Quincy. 

The comparison between those days and these is 
great. Then, it was the center of attraction on the 
bleak winter days: now, the radiators have superceded it. 
Then, it was thought a thing of rare beauty: now, it is 
merely a necessary bookcase. Then, it gazed upon scenes 
of laughter and fun-, now, it gazes upon scenes of study 
and work. 



Oh! if we had only lived in those days. Eut v:e 
must submit to fate and be here and, instead of having 
the good times they had, - study. 

CONSUL FECIT MIIITEM. 



It is interesting to read newspapers. It is inter- 
esting to read your thoughts. Put it is more entertain- 
ing to read Latin-- especially if one is very rauoh unac- 
quainted with it. 

The sentence, "Consul fecit militom" -- (The con- 
sul appointed the soldier) -- can be translated into any 
one of a dozen different ways by a novico. 

One looks in his vocabulary and finds that "fttcio", 
of which "fecit" is a form, means "to do, to make, to 
produce, to appoint." 

The student begins to ponder -- vi ich one should he 
choose? 

"Tie consul did r did' the soldier", In slang, a per- 
son can "do" another b; r "getting the best of' someone, 
either by physical superiority or business cleverness. 

"The consul 'made' the soldier," An uninitiated 



student of Latin might think a wooden soldier had been 
referred to . 

"The consul 'produced' the soldier." 7a s it a 
toy wE ich the consul had taken from his pocket? Or vas 
it a guilty or long-lost soldier who had "been found? 

The last moaning of "fado "happens to be the correct 
one to use in this case. 

Pefore a pupil has learned the significance of the 
various word endings in Lati. t he does not realize that 
the parts of a sentence may be arranged in any manner, 
and still mean the same thing. 

Hence, he reads ''Consul militem fecit" -- "The 
consul the soldier appointed." 

"Fecit consul militem" -- "He appointed the consul 
soldier." 

"Feoit militem consul" -- Ho appointed the soldier 
consul." 

The poor disciple of the speech of the ancient Ro- 
mans thinks of the poem that some fellow-sufferer has 
written: 



Latin is a language 
As dead as dead can be. 
First it killed the Komans, 
And noYi it T s killing me. 



E.H. 



IK TFS DINING FALL 



J7e all hurry to our places. After grace has been 
asked, we noiselessly take our seats and the comedy "be- 
gins. 7or four weeks the group has been together at 
Mr. E's table. L.3. and Mr. M. seem to be in a contin- 
ual argument about something, the threads of which they 
never have any difficulty in picking up from meal to 
meal. The hostess tries to keep peace between them, but 
each blames the other. How often has ] . . made the 
remark that he is going down to the beach with L. and 
come back alone I Occasionally something really funny 
is said that sets the whole table into a fit of smoth- 
ered laughter. 'Whenever L.O. resses I.lr. Y. at the 
other end of the table, he invariably says, "Ai-i-h-h, 
how long are we going to be at this table anyhow? Aren't 
the six weeks almost up?" 

At a neighboring table we glance over and catch 
CM. hiding the butter on the ledge underneath, the table 
for the next meal. 'Then accused of stealing the butter 

that would be used for frying potatoes, she declares it 



would be wasted if she did not preserve it. 

At still another table they seem to be having 
much fun playing the childish game of "Thumbs up." 
Roars of laughter from one of the other tables, upon 
which someone makes the comment that "There is al- 
ways something jolly going on -here Mr. 7. is." 

An now at our own table again, -- L. 1. Fas been 
trying to keep up a conversation with someone at a 
nearby tf.blo, and is accused by A. C. of breaking Rule 
No. 3, Article V. 

Then the announcement comes that the places at 
table will be changed tomorrow, and what a thunder of 
hand clapping strikes the earl Mr. M. and L. 3. join 
in with gusto. 

J.O.E. 
TEB ARRIVAL OF PACKAGS3 
Up the driveway rolls the little green U.S. Mail 
Truck, bearing packages for expectant students. Some- 
one spies the men carrying the packages in to the Man- 
sion Hall. Immediately all eyes are turned and necks 



craned in order to watch. The lesson of the hour can 
hardly "be concentrated upon because within the mind of 
everyone is the cpjestion, "I wonder if cay oackege came 
today . ,T 

The period seems to drag "by slowly and an eter- 
nity passes before the bell rings. Finally class is 
dismissed and everyone makes a wild dash for the Mansion 
Kail. The packages are mauled over, names read on them, 
and if they do not belong to the person, the parcel 
is thrown aside. At last his own name is spied. Ee 
grabs his package and bears it triumphantly to his room. 

In his mind are visions of home-cooked food. An 
empty feeling possesses his Stomach and saliva run3 in his 
mouth. 

It's a greet thrill to get a letter from home, 
but nothing can be compared to receiving a package from 
mother.

.The bell rings, marking the close of the first 
period. The scraping of chairs is heard in the next 
room and the door opens, let 4 ing out a group of chatter- 
ing humanity. ey pass down the hall end their steps 
grow fainter and fainter and die in the distance, only 
to make room for another group of the same chattering 
humanity coming the other way. This is a different 
chatter. 

"Say, Marion, did you get ail your problems for

"Sure, they were easy." 

"Easy, what d T ye mean? Why I worked two solid 
hours on those five examples and I betel a not o ne of

"Dot, did you get the thirteenth?"

are only twelve, I believe and they will not take long.

"A mad rush is made for the door and the chatter- 
ing crowd, goes out, chattering more than when it entered. 
And so it goes. Day in and day out, -- chatter, chatter,

Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring;

CHRISTMAS VISITORS 

One of the most thrilling moments of the Christ- 
mas season to my sister and me, during childhood, was 
the arrival of older "brothers and sisters from far away 
cities. The dark, early dawn of the day "before Christmas 
would find us all bustling around in preparation. From 
the kitchen, which was mother's domain, would issue 
sounds of stirring, beating, and rolling; the banging 
of the over door, and the sizzling of roasting chickens. 

Te two girls would be scurrying around upstairs 
and down, frisking our dusters, shining up nickel, silver, 
and brass; then trimming the tree, wrapping presents and 
decorating the rooms with, holly and bells. 

At dusk, the table set and waiting for the coming 
guests, my sister and I in our second bests would be im- 
patiently alternating between the kitchen and the front 
porch. As soon as we heard the squeaky scrunching of the 
snow-covered walks and the stamping up the steps, out 

we'd rush for hugs and kisses, regardless of snowy over- 
coats and knobby packages protruding from between bexided 

elbows. _^^__^_ 



yWv^ 



At the table there was always the gay chitter 
chatter of newsy gossip about distant friends, and eager 
planning to make the most of every hour of the short va- 
cation . Then the playing and singing of Christmas songs, 
toasting rnarshmallows, cracking nuts, and finally the dis- 
tribution of the presents. 

And on Christmas morning, to be allowed to attend 

the early service in the candle-lighted church with these 

brothers and sisters (from whom we were separatod the 

greater part of the year) -- this was most exciting of 

all. 

J.O.B, 



FIRE! PIHB! 

I've seen a man have e six inch salute go off 
under him and a "bald-headed nan get his head tangled 
up in a mass of live eloctrio wires, but never did I 
see any one or ones look more startled or jump higher 
than the passengers of a trolley car when a piece of 
flooring popped up in tho rear end of the car and a 
cloud of smoke and flames poured out. 

I got my card "board suitcase out of the way of the 
flames and sat back to enjoy the fun. 

The motorman stopped the car and then said in a 
slow, calm voice, "Well, I guess we're afire. Seeing 
that motor's burnt up 1*11 have to use the other one." 

Ee immediately began to tear the control box to 
pieces. 

One woman went forward and ranted to get off. 

"All right," replied the motorman, "but look 
out as you pass this box or you f ll get electrocuted." 

Tho lady must hpve thought the horrors of burning 



^\^\/v/2l 



less than the horrors of electrocution for she sat down 
in a seat to accept her fate. 

Ey this time the car was well filled with smoke 
and the awful smell of burning rubber. A womanish look- 
ing man asked the motorman to open the doors, to get in 
some fresh air. Personally, by the way his knees were 
playing 'Tome sweet Home", I think he wanted to make a 
dive for freedom and safety but the motorman said that it 
was against the law to ride witi the doors open, and hav- 
ing the other motor hooked up we started off. 

"Well, I guess it's against tic e law to roast peo- 
ple," "'as the comeback. 

The motorman then pointed to the sign "Don't talk 
to the motorman, causes Accidents" and drove calmly on. 

One fellow said that he knew it was wrong to 
smoke or. trolley cars but he guessed that he couldn 't 
raise a worse fire and smudge and a smoke would calm his 
nerves. 

All the passengers were now sitting on the edge of 
their seats, first looking at the fire, than at tie lucky 



people walking on the sidewalk and finally turning their 

gaze and thoughts and tongue on the raotorman. 

On raaohing Neponset we were told to sit still 
until the raotorman got someone to .vat the fire out tut 
no sooner than he got the door opened than everyone 
made a grand rush out of the ear. 

Seeing everyone else was going I got up and 
walked out of the fiery furnace . Eut I was not so for- 
tunate as thoae of the "Old Testament" for I lad the 
smell of 3moke on my garments. 

T. A. 
A PIECE 07 T 700D 
It is "nteresting to observe some of the many uses 
to which a pioce of wood may "be >ut . 

One comforting way to dispose of a piece of wood 
is to feed it to the fire-place, there to watch it crackle 
and snap as it "blesses us with tire warmth for which it 
is responsible. 

Then again I think of the clothespin maker and the 
toothpick manufacturer, each of whom uses the smallest 



pieces of wood -- one might say, ''splinters" even. 
An interesting usage of wood is in the hand 
of the- physician, "'hen we rave "been feeling out of 
sorts, he produces 8 little "mustard paddle" out fit 
which he presses on our tongue, asking us to say "Ah," 
as if we were happy with the process. 

Our little brother night he whittling out kite- 
traces or flat -"boats from a piece of soft pine, while 
sister tries to fit in a seat in the rope swing, or 
dad might be making a board for mo tier to cut deli- 
cious cake on. 

Tie demure little school teacher often uses 8 
ruler for the measuring of behaviour as well as for gen- 
eral purposes-- such a useful piece of wood.' 

O^ten a piece of wood may be seen as a boundary 
marker, legally placed, to rpjell real estate arguments, 
or it may bo made into a sign, most welc-me to a trav- 
eler, directing him to the nearest town or hotel, vh ile 
he is weary on his way on a dark and lonely road. 



^wv,^ 



Many a struggling seaman has teen saved by a 
piece of wood -- only a piece of wood, tut oir how val- 
uable ! 

We are thrilled at the beautiful tones of a xy- 
lophone or marimba, the essential parts of which are 
made of graduated lengths of a piece of well-seasoned 
hard maple. 

Peautiful carvings and frescoes can be seen, es- 
pecially on antique furniture, in single pieces of ma- 
hogany and obon v . 

irywhere we see the result of someone's artis- 
tic or economic effort in a piece of wood. I look for- 
ward witl eager anticipation to the day when 1 shall 
possess a "beautifully polished piece of mahogany, cut 
into four strips, and arranged rectangularly -- the frame 

enclosing my diploma I

SATISFACTION 



No ono is ever fully satisfied with people and 
with surroundings. If a person is young, he wishes he 
were old: if he is poor, he wishes he were rich; if 
he is a student, he wishes he were the professor; if 
he is an employee, he wishes ho "ore tie toss: if a 
person is in charge he wishes he didn't have the respons^ 
ibility. 

Yet, if one ever did become completely satis- 
fied with his circumstances, the monotony of satisfac- 
tion itself would make suet a frame of mind short-lived. 
The spirit of adventure, and the desire for new expe- 
riences are inborn in everybody. 



Novelty is what makes life interesting.

irz VALUE OF DISABR33IENT 





How disagreeme 


nt is of value is often difficult 


to cl 


et ermine. If we p 


lace it on the scale of progress 


will 


it tip it? Does 


disagreement get us any-here^ Is 


it 


of help to huraanit 


v? Could we get along without it*? 


If 7 


re o on Id , why have 


any disagreement 4 ? These and other 


cuestions confront us 


-■len we undertake to determine the 


value of disagreement. 






With regard to 


the first, the cuestion of the use- 


fulness of disagreement as an aid to progress, we would 


say 


that th o a dv a no e s 


of the day are directly or indirect- 


ly d 


uo to the Grossing 


of ideas or in other words the 


hold 


ing of two opinions. Por example, if Mr. A. Pishes 


to I 


uild a row of reta 


11 stores at Porty- second Street 


an 'J 


Broadway in Hew York City, and Mr. F. disagrees a] 


says 


, "fto , erect your 


stores at ~ (1 ourt jentr 3troet' ; , Mr .A. 


ma 


t^o ahead an I ereo 


t lis stores at Porty-seoond street 


an 


Mr. P. at ""ourteo 


nth street. 3~on one cr the other 


w 11 L 


find out whioh is 


the "better place for busines . 


The 


one will profit by 


the other's example and should 


the 


occasion evor aris 


e again to open a new store he will 



"be more wary in his selection of a spot. 30 we see 
in this case that disagreement was an aid to progress. 

Disagreement in tie -. of thought is a help 
to humanity, fe m ; f this I "let; - t is actui ted 
by an unprejudiced, unbiased mind. If in our thought 
life we do things just to disagree we are not helping 
ourselves. Put on the otier hand if we differ because 
we have heart convictions on a subject and have used 
the true scientific attitude, that of gathering- facts 
and tl en weighing and balancing '.hem on our mind's scale, 
we aro helping ourselves tremendously. If our attitu e 
is that of discovering and uncovering the truth we surely 
can see great value in disagreement for it is that very 
thing that unearths hidden thoughts, and paves new aven- 
ues of adventure in life. If Columbas had not differed 
-with the thought revalent in his day that the earth was 
flat, we might never have witnes ed the discovery oT . 
erica until today. Put CJolumbus had tie facts. He s 
the ship's mast sink as it passed t] rizon and from 
that he deduced his disagreement, one that revolutionised 
the -?orlcl . Suppose Priestly had not disagreed with the 



Phlogistine Theory? ^o night never lave heard of such 
a thing, as oxygen. Fir. his thoughts ran in different 
channels and he studied diligently, finally proving to 
the -orld th at turning was not caused "by phlogistine but 
b" oxygen. 

I think we shall all agree that if there -ore 
no disagreement in this world things would he in a dor- 
mant state. No matter how greatly this disturbs your 
conception of a modern Utopia, we must have disagreement 
as it is a vital factor in the life of the world. ?rom 
the foregoing points and illustrations we nay easily de- 
duce that our subject is essential to human progress and 
to humanity as a whole. Therefore it remains that ^e 
could not go on having our minds devoid of that faculty 

for disagreeing.

MSIORIBS 

Evening has come. Through the dusk I can see 
a glimmering light in a house not far away reflecting: on 
the newly fallen snow. I approach and look through the 
windc I see Mother sitting in a rocker near the stove, 
mending: "Dad is reading the evenin - paper; Irene is 
working a oross-word puzzle and the hoys are playing 
checkers -- occasionally teasing Betsy, the dog who is 
lying at their foot. 

I gaze upon this quiet scene then quietly steal 
away in the darkness to my own room in a far away city. 



'II. e day was hot; the trip long. We climbed on 
dily. Thirst "-as overcoming us. Presently on our 
ircuitous way we made a sharp turn around a rocky ledge, 
pefore us the road suddenly dropped into a little valley. 
In a grove of trees below appeared the roof of the iouso, 
and as we drew nearer we 3aw a cottage surrounded by 

flowers. Nothing could have "been more attractive to us 



c 



weary hikers than the old-fashioned well n:;ar the door.

LISTENING IN 
One morning while waiting in t* e hall of the 

Canterbury, I was amused "by the various sounds I hoard. 
3ome one was diligently practising on the piano, while 
a girl in the next room was developing her vocal ability. 
TJ e violin teacher waa instructing a pupil and strains 
of that music came floating down the stairs. From an- 
other room came the voice of tl e teacher of the 3ubpre- 

ratory department. 3he was trying to drill into her 
pupils some fact in history. Down from the tv ird floor 
oame the voice of a would-be Demosthenes. The calm 
voice of tie expression teacher corrected him, then he 
continued reading and in my mind I fancied the gestures 
which accompanied it. 

'•]ach one ;j /as earnest and doing his lest, unaware 
that combined with one another, the total effect became 

porous .

3XP2SSS D2 LUXE 

Those who have gone from Long Island to New 
York by tunnel well know the speed acquired by subway 
trains. As the train leaves the station on the Long Is- 
land end the tracks slope rapidly downward. The cars 
seem to leap forward, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty miles 
an hour. Down the incline plunges the mass of human 
flesh encased in iron and steel. Lights whiz past. The 
oar:- hum. 7e go faster. Down! down to the bottom; and 
then u] . *"e Lose speed as the car.; begin tie ascent. 
Slowly the train climbs the grade. T,, e attempt to regain 
our composure. At last, after a long slow climb, we 
roach 5 rand Central station. "7e step on the solid plat- 
form of the subway station and rejoice that we are safe. 

K.O. 
Suoh is the express de luxe. 

G 08 IMOfl 31 rl T -3 N A RAI J>Y DAY 

Tore comes a man carrying an umbrella from 
ich streams f water fall. He rushes madly by as if 
ho would get less wet -hen running; bit in ris hurry 
he steps off the sidewalk into a puddle from whiot he 
comes out minus a rubier and wetter than ever. Next we 



368 several ^Lrls crowded under one umbrella. As they 
orosa ti.e street a oar passes by splashing mud and water 
over them. Here plodding along goes a nan, the very 
picture of wretchedness. Hia trousers cling to him and 
he has in disgust folded his umbrella. Py ^i- 3 side is 
a little old lady loading a poor bedraggled dog, some- 
tl ing like a wet rag.

TEE APPROACH 

As I " : as laid u ion tie table by the surgeon I 
felt some strange quiver run up and dov/n my spine. A 
shoot waa placed over me. Why those vide straps? 01, 
yea, nurae aaya I must keep my logs straight that they 
- mt those lands around me. 

The pillow is made comfortable under my hei . 
wet cioth is placed on my forehead. Fere comes the 
nurse with a cone-shaped affair in her land. M&r, she is 
quick! It is over my nose. Not so bad, tie odor is sweet. 
Yes, but it is choking me. I must get it away. I strug- 
gle, but it is all in vain. Relief is coming. I am lifted 
up in a dream Peace at last. A -
